The point is quite simply really and really does make a difference.

Little 5 minute video explains it nicely.

Honestly really helps on 60Hz monitors, It's a god send infact it's just a shame AMD don't have this but I'm hopeful as it's literally just a driver update

In AMD defense(i know i do this a lot lol) they did introduce the Frame Rate Target in the 15.17 driver update. So basically you can tell the GPU the max target to hit and it will stay below that. Like for me, i OC'd my monitor so it's at 75hz and I set my target to 75 and while it does go over it, it quickly backs down but that's because the games I play aren't very demanding at all. So it's essentially the same thing but it's not done the same way.. kinda like Freesync and Gsync.. i'm sensing a trend here lol

Only bad thing about the FRTC is that it ends at 90fps.. wish it went to 144fps. Not that I need it but some people without freesync but 120hz+ might want it.
